Paris is packed with places built centuries ago and many times it turns out to be a boulangerie/patisserie. I recently saw such a place up on Montmartre, and, although it is old, it was new to me
The exterior which was used in the movie, Julie/Julia. Meryl Streep comes out of the shop and then is magically in the 6th via editing.
Look at this grand ceiling. I don’t think you can find that any more except in something built over 100 years ago.
Lots of great tile in the interior.
I especially loved the croissants and baguettes tied up in ribbon.
You often find a picture of a windmill on boulangeries in Montmartre as there used to be many in the area used to grind wheat into flour.
Hot croissants starting at 4 AM. I don’t think this is true any longer but I think the bakers get up that early to start making all of the baked products.
